Houston And Costner Back On The Big Screen

Later this month, fans can relive a highlight of Whitney Houston's musical and acting career on the big screen, where the film first made history back in 1992.

The Bodyguard will be back in theaters!

An honorable funeral, a Grammy Awards performance, a pending biopic film, an upcoming tribute episode on Glee and an exclusive interview with the survived family on Oprah's Next Chapter — these are all the ways in which different parts of Hollywood have chosen to celebrate the life of the late Whitney Houston.

Add to that the efforts of Warner Bros. and NCM Fathom, who have teamed up to present fans of the late singer with a unique evening nationwide — The Bodyguard will be re-released in theaters for one night only, on March 28!

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the re-release coincides with the romantic thriller's 20th anniversary. The Bodyguard — starring Houston as a famous singer and Kevin Costner as a former Secret Service agent hired to protect her — was the second-highest grossing film worldwide in 1992. Even more so, the soundtrack became the best-selling soundtrack of all time, selling more than 42 million copies worldwide. "I Have Nothing" and "Run to You," were nominated for Oscars, while "I Will Always Love You," "I'm Every Woman" and "Queen of the Night" became some of Whitney's most memorable musical moments.

At her funeral, Kevin Costner took to the podium and reflected on his time working alongside Houston in The Bodyguard.

"A lot of leading men could’ve played my part," he said. "But you, Whitney, I truly believe you were the only one who could’ve played Rachel Marron at that time. You weren’t just pretty, you were as beautiful as a woman could be. And people didn’t just like you, Whitney, they loved you."

Mark your calendars for March 28! The Bodyguard will screen at 400 select theaters nationwide at 7:30 p.m. local time.

I can't wait for this date to come. I believe Whitney gave us all her best vocals and pretty good acting chops for a new actress! I thank Hollywood for honoring her role as a African American female lead and starring actress with a white male who just happened to be an excellent leading man like Mr. Costner. I think the numbers of sales and awards and record breaking speak for themselves about this wonderful film that shows love can happen anywhere with anyone! The Bilble says, "Give honor where honor is due." Whitney worked hard on being the best and she like all of us, have fallen short in our lives and I am sure we have all had ruff times. Let's honor her contributions to the entertainment industry and make this a great night of fun and good memories. Whitney you had many who love you and I hope in heaven you can see that from where you are and know you had a lot to fight for on this planet. We will never forget your talent and your love for what you gave us as an entertainer and a businesswoman in the film and music industry. Thank you for touching all of us with your great talent. God bless and RIP or sing glory to the Lord!
